As the laying cycle progresses, eggs get bigger while calcium metabolism becomes disrupted. Keeping hens beyond 90 weeks emphasizes the necessity to manage eggshell quality throughout the cycle to avoid problems at end-of-lay. BACTOCELL can have beneficial effects on calcium metabolism, leading to an improvement in eggshell thickness and a reduction in rejected eggs. Download […]
